congressional leaders have already staked out their positions. president obama called on house republicans to give certainty to middle class families by extending middle class tax cuts immediately, before they run out at the end of the year. "i've got the pen ready to sign the bill right away. i'm ready to do it." fairness in taxes proved a key issue during the campaign. extending a tax cut for the middle class now would effectively keep republicans from holding it hostage later in negotiations to extend all tax cuts, including those for the rich. "i'm not going to ask students and seniors and middle-class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me making over $250,000 aren't asked to pay a dime more in taxes. i'm not going to do that." earlier, house speaker john boehner told reporters that allowing tax cuts for the wealthy to expire at the end of the year would be harmful to the economy.

millionaires. it won't. i don't understand why republicans don't take obama's offer to freeze taxes for everyone below $250,000. >>reporter: he asked why the republican family should fall on its sword for a bunch of millionaires who live in hollywood and voted democrat anyway. >>shepard: what is the president doing differently? >>reporter: aside from promoting his over referendum he will meet with business and labor leaders tomorrow and wednesday at the white house before meeting with congressional leaders. instead of late-night twisting arms in the cabinet room as he tried last year, the president may do a couple of rallies outside the beltway to remind lawmaker how americans voted. >> tuesday we found out the majority of americans agree with my approach, democrats, independents, and some republicans. new we need a majority in congress to listen. >>reporter: republicans deny the election was a referendum or mandate for a tax increase. they note that the house of representatives didn't change hands and with less than two months before the fiscal cliff some senior republicans would r

the republicans and democrats both have a mandate for compromise. when you heard from republicans -- it is like mitch mcconnell who said his job was to see that obama is never reelected. so, he has an edge year. he does have leverage. but it will be a long haul. he does need partners. >> rich mcconnell is on record as saying that -- mitch mcconnell is on the record as saying that he knows that the election makes some people think that the republicans are going to roll over. that does not sound like compromise. >> your definition of compromise is rolling over and excepting higher tax rates. that is the democratic definition of compromise. i would never suggest bias. the president ran -- i will say it -- the most negative campaign. he did not run on his record. he could not. he did not run on a program. there is one thing he got a mandate for, and he now has a mandate to raise the top tax rate on two percent of the population by four. ? that is the smallest mandate in american history. >> can i say something? >> no, not until i am done. this is true. i am not going to get into this
